Good for evaluating students websites or anything else with a visible URL. Also good for reviewing other websites

Moovly has some limitations - you use a standard palate of shapes or images to do the animation with. That said, it is easy to use and the free version seems quite adequate for what most people would want to do.

carldowse's comment, September 5, 2013 10:20 AM
Ana Cristina, it all depends on the situation and the needs of the learners. For short courses or for writing skills development wikis can do a good job. For more complex courses or with larger groups, Moodle is my preferred option. An alternative to edmodo you might like to try out is https://www.schoology.com
Ana Cristina Pratas's comment, September 5, 2013 1:28 PM
In complete agreement Carl! It's the context that influences my choice of LMS. Because I find Edmodo meets my needs to have a simple & practical LMS for students, while at the same offering me the possibility to teach with it (e.g. word games, digital stories etc), I haven't had the need to set up wikis lately. I've heard very good things about schoology; from what I saw it's excellent as well. We really are spoilt by choice these days! (and yes, in complete agreement with you regarding Moodle; I like it especially for distance ed).
